Today Motorbase Performance, Shredded Wheat, Duo and myself finally announced that I will be joining the 2017 British Touring Car Championship.
I am over the moon with the news and I can't wait for our pre-season test program to begin. Joining this championship is a huge change for me. It will be the first time that I will be competing in front wheel drive machinery. It will also be the first time that I compete in such a fierce championship.
The intensity of the BTCC is by no means a deterrent. I am relishing the challenge. The team has filled me with confidence and our pre-season test program looks really positive so I believe we will be heading into the first round at Brands very well prepared on the new tyre which will hopefully be a big benefit.
I cannot wait for it all to begin!
